In proud tradition, this year's 62nd Berlinale again attracted A-listed Hollywood stars into the German metropolis. Once there, they invited to their premieres (e.g. Angelina Jolie as director), they attended premieres (e.g. Karoline Herfurth) and judged premieres (e.g. Jake Gyllenhaal as jury member). A roller coaster of events took place with ten days of stars walking on red carpets, parties, eager photographers and of course, movies and more movies. At the end of the great film festival we like to present to you the best-of-the-Berlinade hair styles along with styling instructions. See whether you can be inspired to outdo the stars!

  • “Who is going to attend? Who was there?” are among the key questions at great events like film festivals. Of course, this is only true until the prizes are awarded. We were excited that international movie greats like Charlotte Rampling (with her new movie 'The End'), Juliette Binoche (with 'A Better Life') and Meryl Streep (she received an honorary Bear for life-time achievements) joined the film festival in Berlin together with German movie greats like Corinna Harfouch, Martina Gedeck and Nina Hoss. For us the search for the most beautiful hair style was almost more fascinating than the movie scene. This cannot be too surprising. Most stars visit star hair stylist before attending highly publicized events like movie premieres and festivals. Stars always like to look their best but they put in extra effort for great events. Much to our delight, we saw many beautiful hair styles.

  • Hair Styles of Stars: Julia Dietze, Angelina Jolie, Léa Seydoux and other Great Stars

    At a photo shoot, Julia Dietze (she played the leading role in the new far-out version of the movie satire 'Iron Sky') demonstrated her happy 'Li'l Ms Sunshine' side. Her hair in the trendy colour beige blonde was loosely gathered to a romantic updo. Spirited curls danced around her face.

    Her German peer Karoline Herfurth also decided to wear an updo. Her hair was held by a stylish Alice band with a golden leaf. This hair jewellery gave her look a classy and festive note.

    Angelina Jolie made her mark at the 62nd Berlinade film festival both with her movie and her appearance. She introduced her first work as a movie director with the title 'In the Land of Blood and Honey'. It is a movie about love in war-torn Bosnia. Angelina Jolie also wrote the movie script. At the Berlinale, we often saw her wearing her hair in a way that has become typical of her style. Her long hair fell smooth and straight down to chin-length and from there cascaded in soft waves.

    We were also quite taken with Léa Seydoux's partial updo. She pinned her hair up on one side only, while the rest of her gorgeous blonde hair flowed in sensual waves mostly over the opposite shoulder. You may know Léa Seydoux from her roles in 'Farewell My Queen' and 'L'Enfant d'en haut' (the child from above). Soon we are going to see her star side by side with Vincent Cassel in the remake of the movie classic ‘The Beauty and the Beast’. Shooting is planned to begin in the fall of 2012.

    For a photo shoot for her movie 'Shadow Dancer', British actress Andrea Riseborough pinned up only the top part of her long hair, while long romantic waves caressed her shoulders. She probably received plenty of compliments for this playful hair style from her co-star Clive Owen. They both play side by side in a movie about the conflict in Northern Ireland. Clive Owen accompanied Andrea Riseborough to the Berlinade.

    Please enjoy the beautiful images in our gallery showing you the most appealing hair styles of the stars attending this year’s Berlinade. You may also find some styling tips for your own Berlinade hair style.

    Elegant Chignon Slightly Undone

    Styling: Apply volumising mousse to your towel-dry hair before blow-drying it while hanging your head upside down. Use your fingers to rake through your hair and gather it in the neck using a scrunchy. Now firmly put both your hands over the hair on top of your head and push up the covering hair. This creates volume on top of your head. Slightly tease the ponytail and twist it into a loose chignon. Secure the chignon with undulating bobby pins, which have more holding power than straight ones. Apply hair spray for lasting hold

    Updo with Plenty of Volume in the Back

    Styling: Blow-dry your hair while hanging your head upside down to create ample volume on top of your head. Strand by strand, tease the hair in the upper back of your head and apply hair spray to each strand. Twist your hair to a loose chignon in the back of your neck and secure it with bobby pins. An Alice band is used to create some volume above the forehead and to secure the side hair.

    Straight Hair Down to Chin-Length Falls in Soft Waves over the Shoulders

    Styling: After shampooing apply volumising mousse to your hair and blow-dry it quickly while pulling it over a round brush. Roll your hair on large-diameter curlers up to chin-length. Shortly warm up the curlers using a blow dryer. Allow the hair to cool completely before removing the curlers. Distribute some wax on your fingers and use them to shape individual curls

    Romantic but Perky Updo

    Styling: After shampooing apply volumising mousse to your hair. Blow-dry your hair while pulling a round brush through it in long strokes from the roots to the ends. Use a comb to create a straight but slightly slanted parting. Now use a thin curling iron on individual strands of the front and side hair. Allow these strands of hair to completely cool before removing the curling iron. Twist your hair to a loose chignon in the neck and secure it with bobby pins. Apply hair spray for more hold

    Asymmetric Updo and Luxurious Waves

    Styling: After shampooing work styling mousse through your hair. Then blow-dry your hair while pulling it over a round brush. Create a straight slanted parting. At the side where you have created the parting grab the hair, turn it around its own axis a couple of times and use a hair slide to secure it sideways at the top back of your head. Roll your hair up to chin height on a large-diameter curling iron (first apply heat protectant should your styling mousse not contain it). Allow your hair to cool. Apply a trace of hair wax to the hair ends to accentuate a few strands

    Partial Updo and Romantic Long Waves

    Styling: Apply volumising mousse to your hair and blow-dry it while pulling it over a round brush. Separate the front portion of your hair and slightly tease the hair over your forehead. Use a hair slide or bobby pins to secure the front portion of your hair in the upper back of your head. Create the curls using a thin curling iron. Simply roll individual strands of hair over the curling iron and allow them to cool completely. Afterward, do not brush your hair but rather distribute a trace of wax between your fingers and use them to shape the curls
